THE CLUB

ACADEMIA VOCALIS


International summer vocal seminar Wörgl/Tirol

Since its initiation 29 years ago, several music lovers came together to realize a musical dream. The idea was to found an academy to assist young vocal students on their quest for musical education and fulfillment.

But musical education was not to be the sole target. The seminar participants should also be offered a platform to present themselves to a regional audience.

Thus, the Academia Vocalis was born.

A wide range of vocal seminars, spanning all fields from jazz to musical to classical music, from Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong to Mozart, were offered from the start. From the beginning, this vision was blessed with overwhelming success - the club can look back on years of fruitful musical activity.

For 29 years now, up to 150 students from every corner of the globe have populated the streets of Wörgl each year. As an educational seminar, the Academia Vocalis has helped young and budding artists from all over the world in honing their vocal skills in the fields of opera, operetta, song, oratory, jazz, latin jazz, and last but not least, gospel. In addition, the seminar participants can flaunt their talent and newly acquired knowledge in front of appreciative audiences during concerts which finalize nearly every seminar.

Our outstanding quality: Internationally renowned vocal instructors 

A unique quality of the seminars the Academia Vocalis offers lies in the fact that they are supervised by internationally renowned musical personalities. Names like the amicable Prof. Dr. Erik Werba or the unforgettable opera divas KS Prof. Sylvia Geszty, KS Giulietta Simionato, Prof. Fedora Barbieri, KS Prof. Christa Ludwig, KS Prof. Mirella Freni, Prof. Kurt Widmer, KS Prof. Francisco Araiza, KS Brigitte Fassbaender, KS Grace Bumbry, KS Helen Donath or KS Anna Tomowa-Sintow brought and bring the flair of great opera houses to Wörgl. Not to forget KS Prof. Hans Hotter, Prof. Walter Berry and KS Prof. Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau whose mere presence seemed to convey knowledge. On the other side of the musical spectrum are such internationally popular jazz greats as Timna Brauer, Linda Sharrock, Wolfgang Puschnig, the New York soulman James Smith and the Brazilian whirlwind Diana Miranda - all warrants for full seminars and exhilarating live performances.
